My 2c and others on Debian MTA's can be found here;

As a matter of interest, what is the story with all the imap and pop 
implementations? The debian woody "mailserver" task includes qpopper and uw-
imapd. What's wrong with the much smaller ipopd, which is uw-imapd's pop 
counterpart? There is also an imapd package which is even smaller. Then there's 
the courier imap and pop stuff, along with a host of others. When you throw in 
the ssl variants, you get even more, though the non-US versions seem to be 
lagging behind.

What are peoples experiences/comments? Are the ssl variants worth using?
